Lately I've been finding more and more errors on the site. Take this segment, Mordi to Black Rockhttp://app.strava.com/segments/629106
All the average speeds are completely whack (and no they are not in a car!) if you look at some of the speed graphs they get no where near those speeds
The segment you pointed out is quoted too short, hence the average speeds are wrong. The times are legit. It's possible that person who created the segment was missing a bit of distance data or some other kind of gps stuff up on their file when they created it.
It would be nice if they fixed it.
Yeah fair enough, it's annoying the number of segments I see like that though!
My pet hate is people leaving their garmins on whilst driving home and ruining the KOMS!
Perhaps contact their tech support people. One of these happens to be Michael Watts, the admin for the MCL site. If you're trying to contact him, then good luck: you'll need it.
If you find a segment that has obviously been manipulated or has inaccurate data, on the segment page there is an option to flag a ride under the actions tab. Offending performances are usually deleted pretty quick. I flagged a ride yesterday when this thread got me looking at how many KOM's I have around my side of town and there was one I remember taking that was no longer there, turns out the new KOM had miraculously managed to accelerate
to 50km/h on a 10% incline. I looked again this morning and they are no longer on the leader board (then again, I'm not the KOM either, someone else has pipped me legit, I'm going out to change that this afternoon
Strava also creates segments without prompting based on altitude data if the length and gradient of the climb would make it a categorised climb in a racing scenario. I've had a couple created where either I've started my Garmin and started riding before it's locked on to satellites or ridden through major barometric pressure changes and the altitude data has gone screwy. Sure I'd like to think I can climb with a VAM of 3500, but a figure like that would make even Ricco or Pantani blush
